Maternally human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-exposed but seronegative Zambian infants had reduced length and psychomotor development associated with human cytomegalovirus infection. Slower growth was also associated with human cytomegalovirus in HIV-unexposed infants. We conclude that human cytomegalovirus impacts negatively on child health in HIV-endemic regions of sub-Saharan Africa.
